Trivia

The appearance of the dog's eyes on the cover art for this movie, seems to resemble those of Tim Allen, who plays the character, who sometimes turns into a dog. See more »

Goofs

When Dave is distracted driving to the courthouse, he slams on the brakes and the car slides to a stop. The age of car that he is driving would undoubtedly feature ABS (Anti-lock brakes) and therefore would unlikely slide in this manner. See more »

Nowhere near as bad as claimed
19 April 2006 | by (Hexham, England) – See all my reviews

So it's a dumb movie with a dumb plot - what do you expect? Agatha Christie? Robert Ludlum? This is a Disney film for children!

As a kids' movie, it's a lot of fun with plenty of slapstick and lots of laughs. The plot is goofy, but the basic premise is hardly meant to be realistic. This is not cinema verité. People give "What Women Want" with Mel Gibson a much higher rating, but that's just as daft.

There are plenty of set-piece chases, as you would expect with a storyline about dogs.

If you want clever, go see the Usual Suspects, just don't take your under-eights.
